The Kuppersmith Home
- Located in Mobile, AL, the Kuppersmith Home is a blend of the 1920s charm and modern
day luxuries and amenities. Far from just a renovation, the main goal of this renovation project was to create a
modern, low-maintenance home that incorporates practical green principles, maintains the original architecture and
meets the needs and demands of today’s homeowners.
- As part of the renovation of the family room, sliding glass doors were installed between the back porch and the
family room to open the house to the outdoors. The design team needed to source a screen solution that would allow
home owners to enjoy the space during hot spring and summer months without having to worry about insects or heat.
- Lipford Construction design team chose
Phantom’s motorized Executive Screens to provide protection
from solar heat and insects while maintaining the views. The tracks and housings of the screens are recessed into
the porch columns, allowing the screens to be fully retracted out of sight when not in use. The selected mesh type
— Sheerweave 2360 — in charcoal finish helps to block the UV rays from
entering the screened space, thereby maintaining a cooler temperature within the porch when the screens are lowered.
